Just finished printing the gripper thumb. Looks so good and grips so well. No cables required. Thanks to MacGyvrBot for the print files. Now going to work on the arm. Hopefully John will like this one also.

Jon being scanned by Rajab then trying on our prototype. Jon came in expecting a cosmetic arm but was very excited with the possibility of having some function as well.
